Our story starts with Luigi Chinetti the famed sports car driver, who won multiple 24 Hours of LeMans races, and was the first to win one in a Ferrari. Chinetti made a deal with Enzo Ferrari in 1964 to become a Factory Agent in the US and opened the nation’s first Ferrari Dealership. Later the territory became everything east of the Mississippi. His original showroom is currently owned by Miller Motor Cars, a Ferrari-Maserati dealership in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Algar Ferrari is America's most storied Ferrari dealership.
Bob Segal’s son and partner, Jeff Segal still instructs and races for Ferrari in the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Series.
Before passing the torch to a new owner, the Segals completed a 3 year, $7 million renovation of the 33,000 square foot dealership in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania providing a new world-class Ferrari facility in Philadelphia. The facility was christened at the unveiling of the 2012 Ferrari FF and Grand Opening on November 10, 2011. Guests included long-time Ferrari North America executives, valued clients, Ferrari enthusiasts and professional athletes who toasted the new showroom with prosecco and enjoyed a night of live jazz, Italian cuisine, desserts and espresso.
Jack Clarke, VP of Sales at Ferrari North America said, “The entire Algar team has done a phenomenal job creating one of the finest showroom and auto service facilities in the world. We are proud to unveil the Ferrari FF to the Philadelphia market here at Algar.”
Today and tomorrow
In April of 2012, Bob Segal sold the dealership to Aleks, a young visionary businessman who will guide the dealership into the future. Among his top priorities is building and perfecting a state-of-the-art ecommerce experience for Ferrari brand enthusiasts for 2013. Aleks’s leadership ensures that Algar Ferrari of Philadelphia will continue to imagine and realize what’s next, building upon the storied history of Algar Ferrari.
